Methodology for Product Development in Architecture is dedicated to the methodology and processes of designing, developments and research of standard building products, building product systems and special building components, as well as to their applications in buildings. Therefore, this publication is of importance to product designers and product developers, who are mainly concerned with developing products and components at the side of producers, as well as to materializing architects and component designers. They are concerned with the materializing of the functional and spatial building concept as a whole and in parts. This book is first and foremost meant for professionals and students in the professional field of building technology, but will hopefully also appeal to professionals and students of architecture and building management. Professionals and students of related design sciences are invited to benefit from the contents of this work. The theory within this consideration is heavily influenced by the author’s own experiences with building component systems and special components: space frames, glass, cardboard structures and composite structures for free form architecture.
